St. Paul’s narthex has a new addition. A TV monitor has been placed on the wall in a corner of the narthex, easily visible to those entering the church. Postings on the monitor will welcome visitors and will keep parish members current and informed. Content will include a welcome message, meeting and class room assignments and directions, current and upcoming church events, schedules, and other important information. For visitors, it helps to answer the question, “I came to St Paul’s, now what?”
The monitor, associated software, and expense for electrical wiring were a special gift from the Men’s Group out of Lobster Fest proceeds. It is a highly visible communication tool which we hope will help facilitate participation in all the many areas of parish life.
The decision to place a monitor in the narthex comes as a result of requests over several years to make it easier for people, especially new people, to quickly become acquainted with St. Paul’s and to find their way to various events.
The monitor can be programmed wirelessly and even remotely, to make it easy to keep posted information current. It will be programmed and maintained by members of the Communications Committee.
Special thanks to Brian Rudy for his work in developing and installing this new device to improve our communication.
